The N&O has a story up on how Harry Giles is getting better almost game by game - and how his improvement is really timely for Duke.

It also touches briefly on lingering injuries Amile Jefferson and Grayson Allen are working through.

We talked a bit the other day about how Duke’s inside game has suffered with Jefferson’s health but when you add up what Jefferson, Giles and Bolden did you get eight rebounds, eight points, two assists, two steals and one block.

And if you add in Tatum’s rebounds, that’s 16.

Jefferson’s contributions are less post-injury but as a group, they’re nearly making it up.
